Although not as famous these paiters are the equal of most others. One of them, Judith Leyster shares he time frame of being the first successful female painter. De Hooch is a lesser Vermeer; deNeer exploited moonlight in his landscapes. Flinck was a pupil of Rembrandt, many of whose paintings were attributed to his teacher. Honthorst was very competent as you can easily see.
